Galentine’s With Village Goleen

I had never been to a supperclub before last Thursday. There are usually Humans there, you see, and I prefer to spend my time at home alone given the choice.

However, I have secretly always harboured a desire to participate in a Galentine’s event.  Continue reading “Galentine’s With Village Goleen”

2018 Reflections: Food

Inspired by my friend’s post on Instagram, and in an ongoing attempt to improve my relationship with food, I thought I’d do a round-up of my favourite things I’ve eaten this year.  Continue reading “2018 Reflections: Food”

A Pleasant Summer Cocktail

I’m not in the habit of making cocktails, and I don’t drink a lot of them either. The exception is the special one made by Igor at the Bloom Bar just off King’s Cross Road. Igor is a genius and he makes people cocktails according to their tastes.

Other than that, though, it’s wine or whisky all the way for me. Except for one time in April, when I didn’t feel like drinking either of those things. I have an extensive drinks collection at home even though I don’t drink most of them, so I thought I’d make up a cocktail and see how it went.

It went well.  Continue reading “A Pleasant Summer Cocktail”

Fishbox Is Amazing And You Need It In Your Life

I crave fish like other women crave chocolate. By which I mean at a certain point in the month, my body starts craving fish to an inhumane degree. Like, I’ll stand in the supermarket almost crying because I can’t find any salmon in the fridges.

If I can’t get hold of any fish for some reason, I get so nauseous that I end up throwing up for a couple of days. Evidently there’s something in fish that my body desperately needs. Despite trying all the obvious things, I’ve never managed to work out precisely what it is that my body requires from fish. I’ve just learned to go along with its demands.

In recent months this process has become much easier, thanks to Fishbox.  Continue reading “Fishbox Is Amazing And You Need It In Your Life”

Whisky Wednesday: Lagavulin 16

Normally Wednesdays on this blog are devoted to wine, but when I was transcribing my notebooks a while ago I came across a whisky review I’d jotted down, and I thought I’d share it.

So without further ado, welcome to the first Whisky Wednesday, featuring a 16-year-old Lagavulin.  Continue reading “Whisky Wednesday: Lagavulin 16”

Recipe: Incredibly Decadent Parmesan Pasta Bake

This is the kind of food you can only eat about once a year, because it makes you feel like you might explode. Pleasantly explode, though.

The other day I had a sudden craving for spaghetti alfredo. So I made it, and because I can’t tell how much pasta should go in the pan I ended up making about four times too much, and then I had a load left over, and then I thought… I’m sure I could make some sort of incredibly decadent pasta bake with this.

So I did.
